Do some research! Its not evil or NAZI in origin. The same symbol goes back thousands of years, including being used by Native American Indians, and found in designs of theirs.
If I was a murderer and used the HEART symbol on my messages, does the HEART symbol come to mean bad or evil? Of course not.

Like it or not the meaning and what the swastika represents has forever changed specially in the west. How can a person with some knowledge and appreciation of history ignore the symbol of the Nazi and all it stood for 60 years ago..and today with the "white power" movement? Six Million Jews and countless others were murdered, exterminated and tortured under that symbolic flag.
